Many of you know I am on a Gluten Free diet. It has helped quite a bit, mostly with the swelling and bloating I was having with gluten filled diet.
I suffer from nausea and/or vomiting when I have pain or stress. Personally, that makes me NOT want to eat. I will go for days without eating properly, nausea gets worse etc. etc.
Watching Dragons Den on CBC last year or the year before, a pitch was made for this new protein drink. It was developed by a gentleman, Paul, who had a genetic lung disease and required a super food. He and a team developed Rumble to meet his needs.
It is Gluten Free, high in protein, liquid, does not require refrigeration and most importantly comes in Dutch Cocoa as well as Maple Vanilla.
Here is the link to their site to get more info: Rumble
In Ontario, Canada, I am able to buy at Whole Foods (in store) and online (Rumble site). Sadly, it is not readily available in too many places. There have been some Shoppers Drug Mart locations, but not all, that carry it. Other than that it is catch as catch can.
The price seems to range from $2.50 to $4.50 a bottle, depending on the retail and the amount that you buy.
Personally, it has been able to provide me with the nutrition I require, while not putting too much pressure on my tummy. It has quelled my nausea and allowed me to feel full. While many traditional “protein” drinks are available, they tend to be high in sugar and/or taste like chalk or dirt. Rumble, to me, tastes like the fudgsicles of my youth.
A great point is that you do not have to refrigerate prior to opening the bottle. However, it does taste much better cold. Having a few on hand is wonderful, especially for those days when I am too tired or in too much pain to cook; or even prepare any type of food.
To sum up, some of Rumble’s good points:
- Gluten Free
- 20g of protein
- additional nutrients
- low sugar
- 3100mg of Omega-3s
- Non GMO
- gentle food source
- Prior to opening doesn’t require refrigeration
- recyclable container
Some of the weaker points:
- not readily available
- only 2 flavour options
- not a full meal replacement (that is what they recommend anyway)
So as you can see, according to me, the good points outweigh the bad. If you are looking for a tasty, healthy, Gluten Free, high protein food source, give Rumble a try.
